The complex, ever-changing investment world of today requires an institutional investment process that is overseen by a team of experienced investment professionals. Global capital markets present investors with a host of challenges due to the combination of an overwhelming amount of information to analyze and the speed at which this information impacts asset prices. The time and expertise required to perform in-depth investment research and to make timely and informed portfolio management decisions requires both a clear investment process and an experienced investment team to implement the process. Freedom Capital Management Strategies® is closely managed and monitored by an experienced Investment Committee that is comprised of a team of investment professionals with a breadth of experience and includes economists, financial analysts, quantitative analysts, and financial planners. The Investment Committee meets formally each quarter, and more frequently if market conditions warrant, to discuss the state of the global economy and capital markets and to assess the current asset allocation and positioning of each model portfolio.
